    I have owned a small business and hired people to work for me. Why do fools like you make such idiotic comments? Just because you are collecting Social security, a government pension and on medicare, don't take it out the people that want their own taxes reduced.
    If rich folks pay less taxes that means poorer folks have to pay more. Do you understand that? I just want my taxes cut and if that means rich people paying more, then so be it. If you want to pay more taxes so wealthy people don't have to, feel free to send the government extra money.
    The Wall St. bailouts kind of proves how Government looks out for the wealthy. The $180 billion bailout of AIG and bank bailouts allowed the rich to keep getting bonuses thanks to the taxpayer.

    So do you think the budget should be balanced? If so, which of your entitlements would you like to cut?
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    According to the CBO tax cuts increase revenue more then raising taxes..........

    I don't know if you consider welfare, food stamps and unemployment entitlements but that would be a good place to look at.....

    One thing for sure no more bailing out the car or banking industry.......

    No they don't. The CBO has never said that. Here's what the CBO said in 2005 about the Bush tax cuts.

    First of all, even if you completely eliminated all of those things, the impact on the federal deficit would be very small. We simply don't spend very much money on them relative to the overall federal budget.

    Second of all, are you sure you really WANT to eliminate those things? If someone gets laid off in the middle of the worst recession in decades, they should just starve to death?

    Those were one-time responses to an economic crisis, not long-term policy initiatives. If we're going to get the deficit under control, the only way to do so is to look at ways to rein in spending on the biggest-ticket items. That means those entitlement programs you're so fond of. Social security is relatively manageable, but Medicare/Medicaid are a looming budgetary nightmare if nothing is done.

    And the rest of us didn't pay into those entitlements? What a hypocrite.
    It always amazes me how some complain about entitlements yet when it comes time for them to collect they feel like they are entitled.

    Eat my heart out? I am semi retired, have saved up enough to live comfortably without SS which I do not plan on signing up for until I actually need it. Unlike you I did not leech off the government my entire life. Being a supply clerk in the Navy is not all that dangerous or heroic. I worked in the private sector for everything I have.

    And if the car companies come out stronger and contribute to the prosperity of the nation would it have been a bad decision to help them out during the recession? Time will tell if the car bailouts were the right decision or not.l

    This is not a socialist country as much as you and your leaser want it to be.......The auto industry and the banks are private enterprizes...they should sink or swim.......What are you going to do next bail out McDonalds and Burger King if they go bad?

    I did not support any of the bailouts or the stimulus package. However it is too soon to say if they were the correct decisions at the time. If everything works out great and our country recovers and enters a new era of prosperity, then they were right.
    They had tough choices to make and they made them. Right or wrong. Had they done nothing and we had a total economic collapse would you still be whining? I would say yes.
